'Party Down' Creators Now 'Temps' for NBC
Rob Thomas, Jon Enborn, and Dan Etheridge, the creators of the intelligent and hilarious, so of course now cancelled, "Party Down" have sold a pilot to NBC. "Temps" will focus on a group of recent college graduates who are forced to take a variety of oddball temp jobs to make ends meet. It will be single-cam like "Party Down" and "Community" (shows you love), not multi-cam like "Big Bang Theory" and "According to Jim" (shows your grandma loves). Thomas is also currently working on an outline for a show at Showtime. He told TV Squad, "Right now it's simply 'Untitled Rob Thomas Spy Show. It's set in the world of corporate espionage." That project is supposed to be dark though, not funny. At least not "Ha ha" funny. "Temps" better be ROTFLMAO funny, that is if NBC makes the pilot, the pilot tests well, they pick it up to series, it airs, and people watch it so it continues airing. Tell your Nana we need her support.
